Vaping | BBC News at Six

A headteacher has warned that children are at risk of dying because they're using vapes that have been found to contain illegal drugs. Glyn Potts says a 12-year-old boy at his school collapsed after using a vape which contained a very strong laboratory made form of cannabis, called Spice. More and more children are using vapes regularly now, despite it being illegal for them to be sold to the under-18s.
